Who is Teddy Quinlivan? The outspoken model we can’t get enough of

With glass-like skin and a jaw that could cut diamonds, Teddy Quinlivan is the girl we see every 90 minutes over show season, and the one we always want to know more about.

Making her Fashion Week debut with an exclusive appearance for Louis Vuitton in 2015, Quinlivan has reigned over the runway ever since.

She’s earned herself a formidable reputation with her fearless attitude and willingness to speak out on issues that are close to her heart, remaining an enduring role-model for the trans community. In the wake of the #MeToo movement, Quinlivan announced to the public that she would cease to work with any designers, brands or photographers accused of sexual misconduct after opening up about her own experience with the issue.

The Boston native is as unapologetically herself as she is hilarious and charming to observe. Now 25 years-old, she is the first openly transgender model to feature in a Chanel Beauty campaign and has hosted her own TED Talk on living authentically, the latter of which she showcases in every facet of her Instagram presence (which is where we get our daily dose of the life of Quinlivan and all of her ventures). We can’t wait to see what she achieves next.
